Amazon-Hachette feud: No end in sight

By Brian Stelter, CNN Senior Media Correspondent

Amazon says if customers are inconvenienced by its battle with the book publisher Hachette, they should buy Hachette's books elsewhere.

The unusual suggestion was made on Tuesday in an equally unusual statement titled "Hachette/Amazon Business Interruption." It was posted on an Amazon Kindle forum.

It was Amazon's first public comment about why popular books by authors like James Patterson and Malcolm Gladwell are being delayed and disadvantaged by Amazon, the world's biggest seller of books.

Amazon has reportedly been pressuring Hachette to let it lower prices for e-books and ultimately pay Hachette less for them. Hachette has resisted.

"Unfortunately, despite much work from both sides, we have been unable to reach mutually-acceptable agreement on terms," Amazon's statement said.
